Roope Hintz (born 17 November 1996) is a Finnish professional ice hockey forward currently playing for the Dallas Stars in the National Hockey League (NHL). Hintz was selected by the Stars in the second round (49th overall) in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
Hintz made his Liiga debut playing with Ilves during the 2013–14 Liiga season. On 23 April 2015, after two seasons with Ilves, Hintz transferred to fellow Liiga club HIFK on a two-year contract. Hintz was ranked by NHL central scouting amongst the eligible European skaters before his selection to the Stars in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
On 4 May 2017, Hintz agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Dallas Stars. He then spent the entirety of the 2017–18 season with their American Hockey League affiliate, the Texas Stars.
Hintz was named to the Dallas Stars roster to start the 2018–19 season. He made his NHL debut on 4 October 2018 in a 3–0 win over the Arizona Coyotes, and then scored his first NHL goal on 18 November 2018 at Barclays Center in a 6–2 victory against the New York Islanders. After being sent to the AHL, Hintz was recalled from the Texas Stars on 28 December following an injury to Jason Dickinson. Hintz scored his first career Stanley Cup Playoffs goal on 17 April 2019 against the Nashville Predators.
